    The complete theater screening lineup should be announced next week, with ticket sales launching shortly thereafter. As previously announced, the screenings will include new 4K compilations from Tsuburaya of the original ULTRAMAN series. The award-winning hit SHIN ULTRAMAN (2022) will be shown Saturday night, with attendees receiving a free poster for the movie.

    Continuing the SHIN ULTRAMAN fun, MaxToy is producing a licensed, show exclusive Shin Ultraman figure that will only be available for purchase at ULTRAFEST.  The production is limited to 30 figures so make sure to get yours early!
